Savory Roasted Chicken Recipe



10 servings



1 roasting chicken (6 to 7 pounds)
1 tsp. onion salt
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1/2 tsp. dried savory
1/4 tsp. grated orange peel
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. vegetable oil


Place chicken on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Carefully loosen the skin above the breast meat. Combine the onion salt, thyme, savory, orange peel and pepper; rub half of the herb mixture under the loosened skin. Rub chicken skin with oil; sprinkle with remaining herb mixture.

Bake at 375°F for 1-1/2 to 2 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 180°. Let stand for 10-15 minutes. Remove skin before carving. Skim fat and thicken pan juices for gravy if desired.
